    Great suggestion, thanks David! And thanks to other people who took the time to clarify/comment on this one. There’s definitely room to tighten this experience up in a number of places. We’re getting a lot of traffic on the site, so please keep voting for the things you care about most to help us do a great job of prioritizing.

    Best,
    John [MS XL]

    Frankly, the whole conditional formatting user experience is a mess. You have to keep cleaning up duplicate rules, the modal window doesn't scale well when you have many rules, the formula editor is hard to work with, we should be able to contain formatting to Tables or Pivot Tables (not just A:A cell selections) etc. This basically needs to be redesigned from the ground up with scalability in mind.

    Hi Deepak,

    Thanks for logging this issue. I agree this would be quite useful, especially as Power BI is emerging as a hub for business data.

    This request is slightly different than what PBI Desktop does. PBI Desktop essentially provides a Live Connect essentially deferring the model to the service and limiting the experience to visualizations so it’s not importing data into the report. So there’re two possible outcomes you could be looking for:
    1. Allow users to import data into Excel as query tables, just like one can from an external store like SQL Server or Oracle. This provides fine grained data retrieval.
    2. Create a new PivotTable that summarizes data on PBI service.

    The PBI Publisher addin performs #2. Is that what you’re looking for? Or would you rather have #1 if you had to choose?

    Others coming new to this suggestion, please be sure to add your…

    This would be really useful, as Power BI's Analyze in Excel implementation via odc feels clunky. Also a related idea is to support Dataflows as a source in Excel:

    Licensing-wise, this was announced in April 2018:
    https://excel.uservoice.com/forums/304921-excel-for-windows-desktop-application/suggestions/9018823-make-power-pivot-available-in-all-versions-of-exce

    But it looks like you still have to install PowerPivot manually.

    Thanks to Graham for starting this conversation. If you would also like Excel to maintain named range references and structured table references in the “applies to” field for Conditional Formatting rules, please add your comments and vote this one up. We will prioritize accordingly.

    Thanks,
